Note: At the time of writing this tutorial, the Magento PWA Studio version was 5.0.0. We’ve just tested the tutorial with the latest PWA Studio v5.0.1 as well.
As you might know, Magento PWA Studio v5.0.0 officially introduced a new handy command -- @magento/create-pwa -- that allows for getting a new PWA Studio project up and running way easier. Actually, our team noticed that this command was in place before and we did try this command successfully with PWA Studio 4.0.0 for an experimental setup.
This tutorial will walk you through all steps to use this command to set up an initial project structure using the Venia storefront as a template. Continue reading

When you have a large catalog of different products, creating new products one-by-one or updating existing products manually are far from practical. So, it’s essential to find a tool that gives you the ability to manage multiple records in a single operation.
With Magento 2, the easiest way to make mass changes in your catalog is to upload them via .CSV file using Magento’s Import and Export functionality. You can not only import new products to your inventory, but also update, replace, and delete existing sets of products.
Let’s get started. Continue reading
Magento has always provided the level of sophistication for product attributes. Magento 2 is no different.
Before diving into the creation of products, you need to explore a very important -- and powerful -- feature of Magento 2: product attributes and attribute sets. Read on to become familiar with attributes and attribute sets in Magento 2:
- Why are product attributes so important?
- What is the role of attribute sets?
- How Magento 2 uses attributes to manage the information associated with products?
When doing your business globally, having a multilingual store is a smart step to take.
By default, Magento 2 enables you to localize your store in multiple languages easily with the help of translation dictionaries and language packages:
- A translation dictionary refers to a comma-separated value (.csv) file which is a convenient way to create translation for a custom module or theme.
- A language package is a collection of translation dictionaries for all words and phrases in Magento 2 application.
This article will guide you through the process of creating a new language for your Magento 2 theme. For demonstration purpose, we will use our Magento 2 theme -- Crafts 2.0 -- as an example and explain how you can add the German language as well as the English language that is set as default in the theme.

One of the most exciting features of Magento 2 is the ability to set up multiple websites or store views from a single Magento 2 backend and codebase.
For example, you might have different sites per market -- a men’s clothing store, a woman’s clothing store, and a kid store; and each store uses different languages, domain names and categories as shown below: Continue reading
Magento 2 employs backend caching at many levels within the system -- File System (default), Database, Redis and Varnish, which is used to store web pages to speed up the load processes and improve your Magento 2 site performance.

We will also make a short overview of Magento 2’s default cache backend solution -- file system; the difference between cache:flush vs. cache:clean.
